A major piece of research into the one profession where it is still lawful to discriminate on the grounds of religion has just been published.
It finds that just 2% of teachers in maintained primary schools are from a Protestant background and 7% of those in controlled primary schools are from a Catholic background.
The report Employment Mobility of Teachers and the FETO Exception is the first in a series of ten to improve awareness of aspects of the education system in NI, which could impact upon its successful transformation to a more integrated system. It is led by the UNESCO centre through the UU School of Education with funding from UNESCO and the Integrated Education Fund.
